So sensitive subject... I had a water infection or so I thought(again!) and went to the doctors leukocytes were detected and it was sent off to the labs. Pressure in my bladder persisted but according to the receptionist the following week when I rang as I suffered in silence my notes were messaged with " no further action required". I was like OK I will just get on with it then as I've become accustomed. I feel these symptoms often it's always there sometimes its really bad sometimes it's niggly and it's been ongoing for the last 4yrs (not even joking!!) . But for the last few months or so my wee especially in a morning smells, not like Urine but a strong odd odour.
I've had several swabs done last month. No infection, no STD, and my vitamin levels are not high as I know B vitamins can excrete in the urine and smell(so I've read) and no I've not eaten asparagus or any other item of food that everyday for the last few months would I think cause this. The smell is way worse in a morning and when I empty my bladder it feels like my urethra is pulsating and I want to go again. Ibuprofen and paracetamol helps, a hot bath and a water bottle. It's just there. Today it occurred to me that I take my levo at night before I sleep.... Could it be this causing smelly urine... (Not sure about the bladder/urethra thing!)
When I spoke to the doctor during my appointment for swabs etc to get to the bottom of the persistent bladder issue (feeling like I have a water infection every month which is much worse after sex) she turns round and tells me it WAS A WATER INFECTION.
So has this now caused smelly urine?
She said she couldn't now give me the antibiotics as I didn't have any other symptoms! She also dismissed the odour as "it can sometimes" But agreed to send me for an ultrasound. Thankfully.
Also to note recently my liver enzymes are high could this be causing it? Although I've had high enzymes before without an odour......
Sorry this post is all over the place but I've been searching for answers quietly over the last few years but more recently with the odour.. When I search Google it just comes up with things that have been ruled out.
Ive learnt over these past few years if anybodys of any help it's this community, or least you all understand!
Recent blood tests, vitamins, thyroid, liver in my profile. Xx
